CLEVELAND, Tex. ‐‐ The police investigation began shortly after 
Thanksgiving, when an elementary school student alerted a teacher to a lurid 
cellphone video that included one of her classmates. 
 
The video led the police to an abandoned trailer, more evidence and, 
eventually, to a roundup over the last month of 18 young men and teenage 
boys on charges of participating in the gang rape of an 11‐year‐old girl in the 
abandoned trailer home, the authorities said. 
Five suspects are students at Cleveland High School, including two members 
of the basketball team. Another is the 21‐year‐old son of a school board 
member. A few of the others have criminal records, from selling drugs to 
robbery and, in one case, manslaughter. The suspects range in age from 
middle schoolers to a 27‐year‐old. 
 
The case has rocked this East Texas community to its core and left 
many residents in the working‐class neighborhood where the attack took 
place with unanswered questions. Among them is, if the allegations are 
proved, how could their young men have been drawn into such an act?
